2 Introduction

Back to table of contents

This book is truly a Book of Lists . There are approximately 1,991 total books in these lists (1,017 free e-books and documents, 643 commercial e-books, 290 commercial print books, and 41 free audio books). The contents of the books are as follows:

  • Recommended Print Book Lists (248 commercial print books): Short List, Just Recommended (Print) Classics, Recommended Detailed (Print) Book List for the Humanities

  • Recommended Free Internet Downloads : Freely Available Online Texts - Google Search and Play (511 free e-books and documents), Free from Christian Classics Ethereal Library (102 free e-books), Free Classics from Project Gutenberg (404 free e-books)

  • Recommended Serious e-Books : Recommended Commercial (Apple iBookstore) Serious e-books (533 commercial e-books)

  • Recommended Serious Multimedia : Recommended Free (Librovox) Serious Audio Books (41 free audio books), Apple Commercial Media

  • Recommended Fun Media List : Recommended Fun Media List - includes music, apps, and e-books (110 commercial e-books)

  • Recommended Disaster Supply Lists : How to Survive Disasters, Survival Gear Complete Inventory, Survival Bug Out Gear, and Psychology of Survival Checklist (42 commercial print books)

  • More Lists : Bible Translations and Small Philosophy Related Lists

This books of lists was put together to help prepare people for the future, which will likely go in one of 2 directions, or a combination of the 2: we might lose most our technology and social structures because of our overwhelming number of major problems we face in the modern world and revert back to a civilization more like the 19th, the 13th, or even the 5th century AD; or we might find a new source of energy that will propel us into a future more like Star Trek or other Sci Fi movies than like the 20th century.

Either way it is likely the study of the humanities will fade as people see technology as the solution to our problems and destroy and be out of touch with the natural world, or that we are so focused on survival that we don't have time to read or even have access to books like we do today. In between scenarios include many disasters and some very advanced technologies mixed with some very traditional ones.

These lists will help provide a guide to the resources to make the best of the future, no matter what that entails. This book plus many more books and much more content is available for free download at my website at

3 Recommended (Print) Books Short List

"I shall ever try to keep all untruths out from my thoughts, knowing that thou art that truth which has kindled the light of reason in my mind." --Rabindranath Tagore

3.1 Directions for Finding Books

Back to table of contents

The listing of books provided directly below is organized by topic . To find out more information about the specific edition of the book I read, find the name of the author of the book. The table of books listing ISBN, publishing date, and subjects used to place books in stores is organized by the last name of the author .

3.2 Criteria for Inclusion

Back to table of contents

  1. If you see a book that you think should be on the list but is not, likely I have already read it and didn't include it because it was too hard for others to read or it was poorly written including being too repetitive or not being clear and concise.

  2. I have also particularly focused on Asian and classical texts, and have especially tried to limit the Greek, Roman, white American and English writing to as few works as possible, because I think those areas are over read and I have little interest in them after having to read so many of them in high school.

  3. Most of the works I have included I agree with or at least partly agree with and believe can be useful for personal growth except for most the books or the topics contained in "Establishment History" categories which I believe are only worthwhile for understanding history.

  4. I also have usually only included one book by each author and not necessarily the most famous, but rather the most useful one.

  5. Another consideration is the cost and availability of the works. For works that are difficult to find or expensive to buy, I have generally stayed away from.

  6. I generally avoid female writers as most of them I cannot understand.

  7. This is also a great list for Christians who want to study world religions and philosophies without studying the occult.

  8. The Qu'ran (Koran) is not listed as it must be read in Arabic.

3.3 Order of Reading for the Most Fundamental Texts (55)

Back to table of contents

When I studied about Buddhism it took me a very long time, because I read the most difficult to understand of the most important Buddhist Sutras (the Lotus Sutra) first and read in reverse of the order that makes the most sense. I also have realized that recommending about 250 texts or 200 books is too much for most people (even those very serious and ambitious about studying the major world belief systems). The following list is a recommended order, to read the most important Asian-focused texts about the major world belief systems. This is definitely not the order of most importance, but rather the best for understanding the relationships between and evolution of the various major belief systems. If you want to study the different Asian philosophies and religions, I recommend studying Hinduism before Buddhism and Confucianism before Taoism and also to study Legalism, Neo-Confucianism, Jainism, and the Sikh faith as well to get a more complete picture.

I would recommend ideally reading the following, in the following order:

9 Top List - Recommended Commercial (Apple iBookstore) Serious E-Books

Back to table of contents

from Apple iBookstore (533 categorized - I bought and kept all of the following, on my iPad)

9.1 Apple iBookstore and iBooks

Back to table of contents

I have bought several hundred books (below), from Apple and their selection is quite good now (below). Yes, Apple sells books online. Apple may seem to have an oversimplified program for managing books, but I have used a Kindle 3 and the Kindle app on the iPad and Apple's iBooks app is so much easier to use, more adjustable, and powerful, as well as, being easier to manage through iTunes and more reliable. It is also much easier to read on the iPad, iPad Air, and iPad Mini, because of the higher resolution and quality screen of the iPad, iPad Air, and iPad Mini. //itunes.apple.com/us/app/ibooks/id364709193 and search within iBooks or within iTunes on your PC or Mac.

iBooks now comes with Mac OS X Mavericks (OS 10.9, released in October 2013), which is a free upgrade, for at least as far back as Mac OS X Lion (OS 10.7, released in July 2011), through the Mac App Store . All new Macs bought after July 2011 come with Mac OS X Lion or higher and the Mac App Store. OS X Mavericks is only for Macs. It will not run on PCs, iPhones, iPod Touches, iPads, iPad Airs, or iPad Minis. It is widely reported that it makes older Macs run faster.

9.2 Criteria for Inclusion 9.2 Criteria for Inclusion

Back to table of contents

9.2.1 Topical Criteria 9.2.1 Topical Criteria

Back to table of contents

9.2.1.1 Major Topical Focus
  1. This list is focused on world history for Asia, Africa, and Europe, with a major emphasis on Asia and a very small amount of focus, on Europe.

  2. There is also a secondary focus, on major world belief systems, so that the perspective is varied as well.

  3. Time period focus is the Asian Golden Age (about 300 AD - 1300 AD), which occurs at about the same time as the European Middle Ages (about 500 AD - 1500 AD). I have studied the history and writings produced during that 1,000 year period across most of Europe, Asia, and Africa.

  4. I also have tried to include books, that show a different perspective, than people typically study and try to correct things that most people, who study history, learn wrong, for a variety of reasons.

9.2.1.2 Most Important Books
  1. The most important books sub list is the Book Series / In Depth Reading, which includes about 500 e-books.

  2. The most important books are organized, by major historical time periods.

9.2.2 World Regions 9.2.2 World Regions

Back to table of contents

9.2.2.1 Favorite Regions
  1. Central Asia, Southeast Asia, Eastern Europe, and East Africa

  2. Regions in between and connecting Major Countries / Regional Cultures

9.2.2.2 Focus by World Region and Religion

mostly pre-colonial history and religion, especially in Southeast Asia and Africa

  1. Central, South, and East European history

  2. Medieval Christian Mystics and lesser known Christian Existentialists

  3. Medieval (mainly Oriental Orthodox) Christianity (liturgy, history, and theology) in the Middle East, Central Asia, and East Africa

  4. Classical Middle Eastern (including Turkey) Islamic, including Sufi texts

  5. Iranian and Central Asian (everything North and West of China, North of India, Pakistan, and Iran and West through the end of the Caucus mountains north of Asia Minor) history and religion also (including non-Islamic and Shia / Shiite Medieval history, literature, and religion)

  6. South Indian, Pakistani, Sikh, and Jain history and religion

  7. Chinese Zen Buddhism and Korean history and religion

  8. Contemporary Chinese history and Classical Chinese poetry

  9. Christianity, Islam, and (Atheist) Existentialism in Africa

  10. Ancient North America and Pacific, including Polynesia and Micronesia

9.2.3 Detailed Criteria 9.2.3 Detailed Criteria

Back to table of contents

9.2.3.1 Specific Criteria Just for this List
  1. Apple e-Books : All books lists in this section include just books e-Books on Apple's iBookstore, accessed through the iTunes application for Windows and Mac OS X and the iBooks application on iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, iPad Air, and iPad Mini)

  2. Only Books I Like : The big difference between my previous regular book list and my e-book list is that the e-books only contain religious and philosophical texts that I agree with or partially agree with, plus some history. The previous regular books list contained some religious and philosophical books I totally or mostly disagreed with. I have also omitted books in this new e-books list, which I already read and understood well enough, that I do not wish to complete reading or re-read.

9.2.3.2 Major Characteristics of Books Required
  1. Only Well Written Books : If you see a book that you think should be on the list but is not, likely I have already read it and didn't include it because it was too hard for others to read or it was poorly written including being too repetitive or not being clear and concise.

  2. Christian Friendly : This is also a great list for Christians who want to study world religions and philosophies without studying the occult.

  3. Non-White Authors : I have also particularly focused on Asian and classical texts, and have especially tried to limit the Greek, Roman, white American and English writing to as few works as possible, because I think those areas are over read and I have little interest in them after having to read so many of them in high school. I have focused on other often ignored areas of history and religion including:

9.2.3.3 Minor Criteria
  1. A Slightly Different View : I also have usually only included one book by each author and not necessarily the most famous, but rather the most useful one.

  2. Reasonably Priced : Another consideration is the cost and availability of the works. All these works should be available on Apple's iBookstore in iTunes for use on iPads, iPad Airs, iPad Minis, and other Apple devices besides Macs like iPhones and iPod Touches, as I have boughten all of them there and have them on my iPad. Some books are free and some are as high as $40. The usual price is between $5 and $15.

  3. Few Feminist Authors : I generally avoid female writers as most of them I cannot understand.

  4. I am Bad at Languages : The Qu'ran (Koran) is not listed as it must be read in Arabic.

9.2.4 Book Restrictions 9.2.4 Book Restrictions

Back to table of contents

  1. Many people seem to think that an ebook is just an ebook, but it is not. The file formats can be converted to and from fairly easily (except most PDFs), but the real incompatibility comes from a anti-feature called DRM. DRM is a set of software based restrictions that, make it harder to copy books, for people who want to do so legally and easily, who don't know much about computers.

  2. Copyright and technical restrictions on copying apply to e-books, but not regular books, because people usually don't photocopy real books and then sell them, as it requires a lot of work and offers little profit. On the computer, whenever you upload a file, you are actually uploading a copy of that file and whenever anyone downloads it, they are downloading a copy of that.

  3. You have never owned all the rights, to any intellectual property, unless you pay for all rights and hand over something like a million dollars per song. Another term for this is called piracy or what every major belief system and government would call stealing. What you own is a license for 1 copy.

  4. The reality is that anything, that can be seen on a computer, can be copied, despite any software restrictions. The big deal comes with the electronic distribution of books and the same applied to movies and music (although they never meant for it to be so easy to copy music from audio CDs, and each new format is more restricted), so there is a legal quagmire about converting DVDs to iTunes compatible formats and Blue Ray is many times harder to convert.

  5. The real unintended effect of DRM is that Amazon.com e-books cannot be seen in iBooks and Apple e-books cannot be seen on a Kindle. Ironically, Apple allows its competitors Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble to put their e-reader apps on their (Apple's) online store, but Apple is not allowed the same on their (Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble) online stores. Apple still does not even advertise its own e-book store and only just starting with iOS version 8, do they bundle their e-book reading and buying app with new iPads and iPhones.

  6. Books have been disappearing from the Apple iBookstore and Amazon.com Kindle store, as well, with no explanation. It is bizarre that this is happening, but I know that many publishers are upset with Amazon.com. Amazon.com sets the prices, not the author or publisher and they set them so low, that authors can no longer afford to write them, which will eventually destroy the book industry.

  7. Amazon.com has a lot of rules that are very cumbersome like requiring the author to pay the bandwidth fees and only updating the listings every 6 months, even when Amazon made the error. I wouldn't be surprised if Amazon.com is requiring exclusivity, in its war against publishers and authors. The other thing that can happen is that the people who put in on the store do not have the legal rights to do so. Either way, I recommend just buying another related book instead and just stop recommending them to others.

10 Geographic List - Recommended Commercial (Apple iBookstore) Serious E-Books

Back to table of contents

from Apple iBookstore (533 categorized - I bought and kept all of the following, on my iPad)

10.1 Apple iBookstore and iBooks

Back to table of contents

I have bought several hundred books (below), from Apple and their selection is quite good now (below). Yes, Apple sells books online. Apple may seem to have an oversimplified program for managing books, but I have used a Kindle 3 and the Kindle app on the iPad and Apple's iBooks app is so much easier to use, more adjustable, and powerful, as well as, being easier to manage through iTunes and more reliable. It is also much easier to read on the iPad, iPad Air, and iPad Mini, because of the higher resolution and quality screen of the iPad, iPad Air, and iPad Mini. //itunes.apple.com/us/app/ibooks/id364709193 and search within iBooks or within iTunes on your PC or Mac.

iBooks now comes with Mac OS X Mavericks (OS 10.9, released in October 2013), which is a free upgrade, for at least as far back as Mac OS X Lion (OS 10.7, released in July 2011), through the Mac App Store . All new Macs bought after July 2011 come with Mac OS X Lion or higher and the Mac App Store. OS X Mavericks is only for Macs. It will not run on PCs, iPhones, iPod Touches, iPads, iPad Airs, or iPad Minis. It is widely reported that it makes older Macs run faster.

10.2 Criteria for Inclusion 10.2 Criteria for Inclusion

Back to table of contents

10.2.1 Topical Criteria 10.2.1 Topical Criteria

Back to table of contents

10.2.1.1 Major Topical Focus
  1. This list is focused on world history for Asia, Africa, and Europe, with a major emphasis on Asia and a very small amount of focus, on Europe.

  2. There is also a secondary focus, on major world belief systems, so that the perspective is varied as well.

  3. Time period focus is the Asian Golden Age (about 300 AD - 1300 AD), which occurs at about the same time as the European Middle Ages (about 500 AD - 1500 AD). I have studied the history and writings produced during that 1,000 year period across most of Europe, Asia, and Africa.

  4. I also have tried to include books, that show a different perspective, than people typically study and try to correct things that most people, who study history, learn wrong, for a variety of reasons.

10.2.1.2 Most Important Books
  1. The most important books sub list is the Book Series / In Depth Reading, which includes about 500 e-books.

  2. The most important books are organized, by major historical time periods.

10.2.2 World Regions 10.2.2 World Regions

Back to table of contents

10.2.2.1 Favorite Regions
  1. Central Asia, Southeast Asia, Eastern Europe, and East Africa

  2. Regions in between and connecting Major Countries / Regional Cultures

10.2.2.2 Focus by World Region and Religion

mostly pre-colonial history and religion, especially in Southeast Asia and Africa

  1. Central, South, and East European history

  2. Medieval Christian Mystics and lesser known Christian Existentialists

  3. Medieval (mainly Oriental Orthodox) Christianity (liturgy, history, and theology) in the Middle East, Central Asia, and East Africa

  4. Classical Middle Eastern (including Turkey) Islamic, including Sufi texts

  5. Iranian and Central Asian (everything North and West of China, North of India, Pakistan, and Iran and West through the end of the Caucus mountains north of Asia Minor) history and religion also (including non-Islamic and Shia / Shiite Medieval history, literature, and religion)

  6. South Indian, Pakistani, Sikh, and Jain history and religion

  7. Chinese Zen Buddhism and Korean history and religion

  8. Contemporary Chinese history and Classical Chinese poetry

  9. Christianity, Islam, and (Atheist) Existentialism in Africa

  10. Ancient North America and Pacific, including Polynesia and Micronesia

10.2.3 Detailed Criteria 10.2.3 Detailed Criteria

Back to table of contents

10.2.3.1 Specific Criteria Just for this List
  1. Apple e-Books : All books lists in this section include just books e-Books on Apple's iBookstore, accessed through the iTunes application for Windows and Mac OS X and the iBooks application on iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, iPad Air, and iPad Mini)

  2. Only Books I Like : The big difference between my previous regular book list and my e-book list is that the e-books only contain religious and philosophical texts that I agree with or partially agree with, plus some history. The previous regular books list contained some religious and philosophical books I totally or mostly disagreed with. I have also omitted books in this new e-books list, which I already read and understood well enough, that I do not wish to complete reading or re-read.

10.2.3.2 Major Characteristics of Books Required
  1. Only Well Written Books : If you see a book that you think should be on the list but is not, likely I have already read it and didn't include it because it was too hard for others to read or it was poorly written including being too repetitive or not being clear and concise.

  2. Christian Friendly : This is also a great list for Christians who want to study world religions and philosophies without studying the occult.

  3. Non-White Authors : I have also particularly focused on Asian and classical texts, and have especially tried to limit the Greek, Roman, white American and English writing to as few works as possible, because I think those areas are over read and I have little interest in them after having to read so many of them in high school. I have focused on other often ignored areas of history and religion including:

10.2.3.3 Minor Criteria
  1. A Slightly Different View : I also have usually only included one book by each author and not necessarily the most famous, but rather the most useful one.

  2. Reasonably Priced : Another consideration is the cost and availability of the works. All these works should be available on Apple's iBookstore in iTunes for use on iPads, iPad Airs, iPad Minis, and other Apple devices besides Macs like iPhones and iPod Touches, as I have boughten all of them there and have them on my iPad. Some books are free and some are as high as $40. The usual price is between $5 and $15.

  3. Few Feminist Authors : I generally avoid female writers as most of them I cannot understand.

  4. I am Bad at Languages : The Qu'ran (Koran) is not listed as it must be read in Arabic.

10.2.4 Book Restrictions 10.2.4 Book Restrictions

Back to table of contents

  1. Many people seem to think that an ebook is just an ebook, but it is not. The file formats can be converted to and from fairly easily (except most PDFs), but the real incompatibility comes from a anti-feature called DRM. DRM is a set of software based restrictions that, make it harder to copy books, for people who want to do so legally and easily, who don't know much about computers.

  2. Copyright and technical restrictions on copying apply to e-books, but not regular books, because people usually don't photocopy real books and then sell them, as it requires a lot of work and offers little profit. On the computer, whenever you upload a file, you are actually uploading a copy of that file and whenever anyone downloads it, they are downloading a copy of that.

  3. You have never owned all the rights, to any intellectual property, unless you pay for all rights and hand over something like a million dollars per song. Another term for this is called piracy or what every major belief system and government would call stealing. What you own is a license for 1 copy.

  4. The reality is that anything, that can be seen on a computer, can be copied, despite any software restrictions. The big deal comes with the electronic distribution of books and the same applied to movies and music (although they never meant for it to be so easy to copy music from audio CDs, and each new format is more restricted), so there is a legal quagmire about converting DVDs to iTunes compatible formats and Blue Ray is many times harder to convert.

  5. The real unintended effect of DRM is that Amazon.com e-books cannot be seen in iBooks and Apple e-books cannot be seen on a Kindle. Ironically, Apple allows its competitors Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble to put their e-reader apps on their (Apple's) online store, but Apple is not allowed the same on their (Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble) online stores. Apple still does not even advertise its own e-book store and only just starting with iOS version 8, do they bundle their e-book reading and buying app with new iPads and iPhones.

  6. Books have been disappearing from the Apple iBookstore and Amazon.com Kindle store, as well, with no explanation. It is bizarre that this is happening, but I know that many publishers are upset with Amazon.com. Amazon.com sets the prices, not the author or publisher and they set them so low, that authors can no longer afford to write them, which will eventually destroy the book industry.

  7. Amazon.com has a lot of rules that are very cumbersome like requiring the author to pay the bandwidth fees and only updating the listings every 6 months, even when Amazon made the error. I wouldn't be surprised if Amazon.com is requiring exclusivity, in its war against publishers and authors. The other thing that can happen is that the people who put in on the store do not have the legal rights to do so. Either way, I recommend just buying another related book instead and just stop recommending them to others.

11 Main List - Recommended Commercial (Apple iBookstore) Serious E-Books

Back to table of contents

from Apple iBookstore (533 categorized - I bought and kept all of the following, on my iPad)

11.1 Apple iBookstore and iBooks

Back to table of contents

I have bought several hundred books (below), from Apple and their selection is quite good now (below). Yes, Apple sells books online. Apple may seem to have an oversimplified program for managing books, but I have used a Kindle 3 and the Kindle app on the iPad and Apple's iBooks app is so much easier to use, more adjustable, and powerful, as well as, being easier to manage through iTunes and more reliable. It is also much easier to read on the iPad, iPad Air, and iPad Mini, because of the higher resolution and quality screen of the iPad, iPad Air, and iPad Mini. //itunes.apple.com/us/app/ibooks/id364709193 and search within iBooks or within iTunes on your PC or Mac.

iBooks now comes with Mac OS X Mavericks (OS 10.9, released in October 2013), which is a free upgrade, for at least as far back as Mac OS X Lion (OS 10.7, released in July 2011), through the Mac App Store . All new Macs bought after July 2011 come with Mac OS X Lion or higher and the Mac App Store. OS X Mavericks is only for Macs. It will not run on PCs, iPhones, iPod Touches, iPads, iPad Airs, or iPad Minis. It is widely reported that it makes older Macs run faster.

11.2 Criteria for Inclusion 11.2 Criteria for Inclusion

Back to table of contents

11.2.1 Topical Criteria 11.2.1 Topical Criteria

Back to table of contents

11.2.1.1 Major Topical Focus
  1. This list is focused on world history for Asia, Africa, and Europe, with a major emphasis on Asia and a very small amount of focus, on Europe.

  2. There is also a secondary focus, on major world belief systems, so that the perspective is varied as well.

  3. Time period focus is the Asian Golden Age (about 300 AD - 1300 AD), which occurs at about the same time as the European Middle Ages (about 500 AD - 1500 AD). I have studied the history and writings produced during that 1,000 year period across most of Europe, Asia, and Africa.

  4. I also have tried to include books, that show a different perspective, than people typically study and try to correct things that most people, who study history, learn wrong, for a variety of reasons.

11.2.1.2 Most Important Books
  1. The most important books sub list is the Book Series / In Depth Reading, which includes about 500 e-books.

  2. The most important books are organized, by major historical time periods.

11.2.2 World Regions 11.2.2 World Regions

Back to table of contents

11.2.2.1 Favorite Regions
  1. Central Asia, Southeast Asia, Eastern Europe, and East Africa

  2. Regions in between and connecting Major Countries / Regional Cultures

mostly pre-colonial history and religion, especially in Southeast Asia and Africa

  3. Medieval (mainly Oriental Orthodox) Christianity (liturgy, history, and theology) in the Middle East, Central Asia, and East Africa

  4. Classical Middle Eastern (including Turkey) Islamic, including Sufi texts

  5. Iranian and Central Asian (everything North and West of China, North of India, Pakistan, and Iran and West through the end of the Caucus mountains north of Asia Minor) history and religion also (including non-Islamic and Shia / Shiite Medieval history, literature, and religion)

  6. South Indian, Pakistani, Sikh, and Jain history and religion

  8. Contemporary Chinese history and Classical Chinese poetry

  9. Christianity, Islam, and (Atheist) Existentialism in Africa

  10. Ancient North America and Pacific, including Polynesia and Micronesia

11.2.3 Detailed Criteria 11.2.3 Detailed Criteria

Back to table of contents

11.2.3.1 Specific Criteria Just for this List
  1. Apple e-Books : All books lists in this section include just books e-Books on Apple's iBookstore, accessed through the iTunes application for Windows and Mac OS X and the iBooks application on iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, iPad Air, and iPad Mini)

  2. Only Books I Like : The big difference between my previous regular book list and my e-book list is that the e-books only contain religious and philosophical texts that I agree with or partially agree with, plus some history. The previous regular books list contained some religious and philosophical books I totally or mostly disagreed with. I have also omitted books in this new e-books list, which I already read and understood well enough, that I do not wish to complete reading or re-read.

11.2.3.2 Major Characteristics of Books Required
  1. Only Well Written Books : If you see a book that you think should be on the list but is not, likely I have already read it and didn't include it because it was too hard for others to read or it was poorly written including being too repetitive or not being clear and concise.

  2. Christian Friendly : This is also a great list for Christians who want to study world religions and philosophies without studying the occult.

  3. Non-White Authors : I have also particularly focused on Asian and classical texts, and have especially tried to limit the Greek, Roman, white American and English writing to as few works as possible, because I think those areas are over read and I have little interest in them after having to read so many of them in high school. I have focused on other often ignored areas of history and religion including:

11.2.3.3 Minor Criteria
  1. A Slightly Different View : I also have usually only included one book by each author and not necessarily the most famous, but rather the most useful one.

  2. Reasonably Priced : Another consideration is the cost and availability of the works. All these works should be available on Apple's iBookstore in iTunes for use on iPads, iPad Airs, iPad Minis, and other Apple devices besides Macs like iPhones and iPod Touches, as I have boughten all of them there and have them on my iPad. Some books are free and some are as high as $40. The usual price is between $5 and $15.

  3. Few Feminist Authors : I generally avoid female writers as most of them I cannot understand.

  4. I am Bad at Languages : The Qu'ran (Koran) is not listed as it must be read in Arabic.

11.2.4 Book Restrictions 11.2.4 Book Restrictions

Back to table of contents

  1. Many people seem to think that an ebook is just an ebook, but it is not. The file formats can be converted to and from fairly easily (except most PDFs), but the real incompatibility comes from a anti-feature called DRM. DRM is a set of software based restrictions that, make it harder to copy books, for people who want to do so legally and easily, who don't know much about computers.

  2. Copyright and technical restrictions on copying apply to e-books, but not regular books, because people usually don't photocopy real books and then sell them, as it requires a lot of work and offers little profit. On the computer, whenever you upload a file, you are actually uploading a copy of that file and whenever anyone downloads it, they are downloading a copy of that.

  3. You have never owned all the rights, to any intellectual property, unless you pay for all rights and hand over something like a million dollars per song. Another term for this is called piracy or what every major belief system and government would call stealing. What you own is a license for 1 copy.

  4. The reality is that anything, that can be seen on a computer, can be copied, despite any software restrictions. The big deal comes with the electronic distribution of books and the same applied to movies and music (although they never meant for it to be so easy to copy music from audio CDs, and each new format is more restricted), so there is a legal quagmire about converting DVDs to iTunes compatible formats and Blue Ray is many times harder to convert.

  5. The real unintended effect of DRM is that Amazon.com e-books cannot be seen in iBooks and Apple e-books cannot be seen on a Kindle. Ironically, Apple allows its competitors Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble to put their e-reader apps on their (Apple's) online store, but Apple is not allowed the same on their (Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble) online stores. Apple still does not even advertise its own e-book store and only just starting with iOS version 8, do they bundle their e-book reading and buying app with new iPads and iPhones.

  6. Books have been disappearing from the Apple iBookstore and Amazon.com Kindle store, as well, with no explanation. It is bizarre that this is happening, but I know that many publishers are upset with Amazon.com. Amazon.com sets the prices, not the author or publisher and they set them so low, that authors can no longer afford to write them, which will eventually destroy the book industry.

  7. Amazon.com has a lot of rules that are very cumbersome like requiring the author to pay the bandwidth fees and only updating the listings every 6 months, even when Amazon made the error. I wouldn't be surprised if Amazon.com is requiring exclusivity, in its war against publishers and authors. The other thing that can happen is that the people who put in on the store do not have the legal rights to do so. Either way, I recommend just buying another related book instead and just stop recommending them to others.

from Apple iBookstore (533 categorized - I bought and kept all of the following, on my iPad)

12.1 Apple iBookstore and iBooks

Back to table of contents

I have bought several hundred books (below), from Apple and their selection is quite good now (below). Yes, Apple sells books online. Apple may seem to have an oversimplified program for managing books, but I have used a Kindle 3 and the Kindle app on the iPad and Apple's iBooks app is so much easier to use, more adjustable, and powerful, as well as, being easier to manage through iTunes and more reliable. It is also much easier to read on the iPad, iPad Air, and iPad Mini, because of the higher resolution and quality screen of the iPad, iPad Air, and iPad Mini. //itunes.apple.com/us/app/ibooks/id364709193 and search within iBooks or within iTunes on your PC or Mac.

iBooks now comes with Mac OS X Mavericks (OS 10.9, released in October 2013), which is a free upgrade, for at least as far back as Mac OS X Lion (OS 10.7, released in July 2011), through the Mac App Store . All new Macs bought after July 2011 come with Mac OS X Lion or higher and the Mac App Store. OS X Mavericks is only for Macs. It will not run on PCs, iPhones, iPod Touches, iPads, iPad Airs, or iPad Minis. It is widely reported that it makes older Macs run faster.

12.2.1 Topical Criteria 12.2.1 Topical Criteria

Back to table of contents

12.2.1.1 Major Topical Focus
  1. This list is focused on world history for Asia, Africa, and Europe, with a major emphasis on Asia and a very small amount of focus, on Europe.

  2. There is also a secondary focus, on major world belief systems, so that the perspective is varied as well.

  3. Time period focus is the Asian Golden Age (about 300 AD - 1300 AD), which occurs at about the same time as the European Middle Ages (about 500 AD - 1500 AD). I have studied the history and writings produced during that 1,000 year period across most of Europe, Asia, and Africa.

  4. I also have tried to include books, that show a different perspective, than people typically study and try to correct things that most people, who study history, learn wrong, for a variety of reasons.

12.2.1.2 Most Important Books
  1. The most important books sub list is the Book Series / In Depth Reading, which includes about 500 e-books.

  2. The most important books are organized, by major historical time periods.

12.2.2 World Regions 12.2.2 World Regions

  2. Regions in between and connecting Major Countries / Regional Cultures

12.2.2.2 Focus by World Region and Religion

mostly pre-colonial history and religion, especially in Southeast Asia and Africa

  2. Medieval Christian Mystics and lesser known Christian Existentialists

  3. Medieval (mainly Oriental Orthodox) Christianity (liturgy, history, and theology) in the Middle East, Central Asia, and East Africa

  4. Classical Middle Eastern (including Turkey) Islamic, including Sufi texts

  5. Iranian and Central Asian (everything North and West of China, North of India, Pakistan, and Iran and West through the end of the Caucus mountains north of Asia Minor) history and religion also (including non-Islamic and Shia / Shiite Medieval history, literature, and religion)

  6. South Indian, Pakistani, Sikh, and Jain history and religion

  7. Chinese Zen Buddhism and Korean history and religion

  8. Contemporary Chinese history and Classical Chinese poetry

  9. Christianity, Islam, and (Atheist) Existentialism in Africa

12.2.3 Detailed Criteria 12.2.3 Detailed Criteria

Back to table of contents

12.2.3.1 Specific Criteria Just for this List
  1. Apple e-Books : All books lists in this section include just books e-Books on Apple's iBookstore, accessed through the iTunes application for Windows and Mac OS X and the iBooks application on iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, iPad Air, and iPad Mini)

  2. Only Books I Like : The big difference between my previous regular book list and my e-book list is that the e-books only contain religious and philosophical texts that I agree with or partially agree with, plus some history. The previous regular books list contained some religious and philosophical books I totally or mostly disagreed with. I have also omitted books in this new e-books list, which I already read and understood well enough, that I do not wish to complete reading or re-read.

12.2.3.2 Major Characteristics of Books Required
  1. Only Well Written Books : If you see a book that you think should be on the list but is not, likely I have already read it and didn't include it because it was too hard for others to read or it was poorly written including being too repetitive or not being clear and concise.

  2. Christian Friendly : This is also a great list for Christians who want to study world religions and philosophies without studying the occult.

  3. Non-White Authors : I have also particularly focused on Asian and classical texts, and have especially tried to limit the Greek, Roman, white American and English writing to as few works as possible, because I think those areas are over read and I have little interest in them after having to read so many of them in high school. I have focused on other often ignored areas of history and religion including:

12.2.3.3 Minor Criteria
  1. A Slightly Different View : I also have usually only included one book by each author and not necessarily the most famous, but rather the most useful one.

  2. Reasonably Priced : Another consideration is the cost and availability of the works. All these works should be available on Apple's iBookstore in iTunes for use on iPads, iPad Airs, iPad Minis, and other Apple devices besides Macs like iPhones and iPod Touches, as I have boughten all of them there and have them on my iPad. Some books are free and some are as high as $40. The usual price is between $5 and $15.

  3. Few Feminist Authors : I generally avoid female writers as most of them I cannot understand.

  4. I am Bad at Languages : The Qu'ran (Koran) is not listed as it must be read in Arabic.

12.2.4 Book Restrictions 12.2.4 Book Restrictions

Back to table of contents

  1. Many people seem to think that an ebook is just an ebook, but it is not. The file formats can be converted to and from fairly easily (except most PDFs), but the real incompatibility comes from a anti-feature called DRM. DRM is a set of software based restrictions that, make it harder to copy books, for people who want to do so legally and easily, who don't know much about computers.

  2. Copyright and technical restrictions on copying apply to e-books, but not regular books, because people usually don't photocopy real books and then sell them, as it requires a lot of work and offers little profit. On the computer, whenever you upload a file, you are actually uploading a copy of that file and whenever anyone downloads it, they are downloading a copy of that.

  3. You have never owned all the rights, to any intellectual property, unless you pay for all rights and hand over something like a million dollars per song. Another term for this is called piracy or what every major belief system and government would call stealing. What you own is a license for 1 copy.

  4. The reality is that anything, that can be seen on a computer, can be copied, despite any software restrictions. The big deal comes with the electronic distribution of books and the same applied to movies and music (although they never meant for it to be so easy to copy music from audio CDs, and each new format is more restricted), so there is a legal quagmire about converting DVDs to iTunes compatible formats and Blue Ray is many times harder to convert.

  5. The real unintended effect of DRM is that Amazon.com e-books cannot be seen in iBooks and Apple e-books cannot be seen on a Kindle. Ironically, Apple allows its competitors Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble to put their e-reader apps on their (Apple's) online store, but Apple is not allowed the same on their (Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble) online stores. Apple still does not even advertise its own e-book store and only just starting with iOS version 8, do they bundle their e-book reading and buying app with new iPads and iPhones.

  6. Books have been disappearing from the Apple iBookstore and Amazon.com Kindle store, as well, with no explanation. It is bizarre that this is happening, but I know that many publishers are upset with Amazon.com. Amazon.com sets the prices, not the author or publisher and they set them so low, that authors can no longer afford to write them, which will eventually destroy the book industry.

  7. Amazon.com has a lot of rules that are very cumbersome like requiring the author to pay the bandwidth fees and only updating the listings every 6 months, even when Amazon made the error. I wouldn't be surprised if Amazon.com is requiring exclusivity, in its war against publishers and authors. The other thing that can happen is that the people who put in on the store do not have the legal rights to do so. Either way, I recommend just buying another related book instead and just stop recommending them to others.

15 How to Survive Disasters

Back to table of contents

Beyond the Willamette Valley

"And Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went throughout all the land of Egypt. And in the seven plenteous years the earth brought forth by handfuls. And he gathered up all the food of the seven years, which were in the land of Egypt, and laid up the food in the cities: the food of the field, which was round about every city, laid he up in the same. And Joseph gathered corn as the sand of the sea, very much, until he left numbering; for it was without number. And unto Joseph were born two sons before the years of famine came, which Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On bare unto him. And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh: For God, said he, hath made me forget all my toil, and all my father's house. And the name of the second called he Ephraim: For God hath caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction. And the seven years of plenteousness, that was in the land of Egypt, were ended. And the seven years of dearth began to come, according as Joseph had said: and the dearth was in all lands; but in all the land of Egypt there was bread. And when all the land of Egypt was famished, the people cried to Pharaoh for bread: and Pharaoh said unto all the Egyptians, Go unto Joseph; what he saith to you, do. And the famine was over all the face of the earth: And Joseph opened all the storehouses, and sold unto the Egyptians; and the famine waxed sore in the land of Egypt. And all countries came into Egypt to Joseph for to buy corn; because that the famine was so sore in all lands."

--Genesis 41:46-57

15.1 Survive Disasters: What to Prepare For

Back to table of contents

15.1.1 What Kind of Disasters

Back to table of contents

Every survival list will be different because they are designed for different disasters. You cannot make a kit to survive all possible disasters.

Look at your national or international television or Internet news over the past several years and you will see many of the following in the headlines. Study your local history and past disasters that have happened where you live and work. Study what life was like before electricity and modern plumbing came to your area.

I have focused on the Willamette Valley (in Oregon), so in your preparations you must factor in the variables mentioned below.

15.1.2 Regional Factors

Back to table of contents

  • geography

  • weather

  • wind patterns

  • soil type

  • access to drinkable water

  • population density

  • distance from military installations

  • amount of land you own

  • crime level

  • population diversity

  • local politics

  • gun laws

15.1.3 Survival Items Most Affected by Regional Factors

Back to table of contents

  • water storage

  • amount of food on hand

  • seeds

  • clothing

  • personal protection/self defense

  • nuclear radiation protection (applies the same to most US areas except for the area of the Oregon I live in, due to spread of possible targets and wind patterns)

15.1.4 Examples of Major Disasters

Back to table of contents

vary depend on your location but include:

  • biological, chemical, nuclear, and radiological terrorism or foreign country attack;

  • disease outbreaks including avian flue;

  • water born severe storms which are called either: hurricanes, typhoons, tropical storms, cyclonic storms, tropical depressions, or cyclones;

  • earthquakes and volcanic eruptions;

  • global famine;

  • global climate change/global warming with sea level rises affecting most of the population which lives near the sea;

  • running out of natural resources like drinkable water, fertile soil, or oil (which is the basis of modern civilization);

  • space based threats including asteroid or comet impacts, cosmic radiation, pole shift;

  • economic problems like worldwide depressions, hyperinflation;

  • major communications infrastructure breakdown like entire grid power outages or major satellite failure

15.1.5 More Common and Personal or Local Disasters

Back to table of contents

15.1.5.1 primarily need financial/related preparation:
  • loss of job or incomes,

  • loss of retirement or investments,

  • loss of transportation,

  • death of family member,

  • diagnosis of serious/chronic illness,

  • house or building fire,

15.1.5.2 primarily natural/related disasters:
  • local power outage,

  • local flooding,

  • roads blocked due to winter weather,

  • unusually high or low temperatures,

  • getting lost in the wild,

15.1.5.3 primarily social/related problems
  • riots for various reasons,

  • getting kidnapped or burglarized,

  • going into the wrong neighborhood,

  • stuck in airports or overseas,

15.1.5.4 primarily medical/related problems
  • exposure to toxic chemicals,

  • getting severely injured due to an accident while alone

15.1.6 Survival Items Most Affected by Disaster Scenario

Back to table of contents

  • location of gear (on person, car, suitcase/backpack, current residence, doomstead)

  • skills to learn

  • amount of land to own

  • amount of cash on hand

  • fuel

  • electrical power supplies (batteries, generators, solar panels)

  • amount of food on hand

  • personal protection/self defense

15.2 Survive Disasters: Answering Objections

Back to table of contents

15.2.1 Disaster Preparation is a Kind of Insurance

Back to table of contents

Some people think to prepare for disasters leads to desiring they come true so you are proved right. But most people who prepare do so for the same reasons people buy different kinds of insurance. People buy life insurance, still hoping they will live, medical insurance, still hoping not to get sick, and car and house insurance still hoping to not to lose their possessions.

15.2.2 The Government Will Not Save You

Back to table of contents

Some people are willing to rely solely on the government to protect and provide for them in case of disasters. Based on my understanding of how the military operates from my own Army enlistment, based on what happened in reports of survivors of Hurricane Katrina, and hearing disaster plans from the local FEMA office, do not expect the government will help you at all and definitely not until 72 hours have passed at the very least.

In most situations when the power goes down (including water and sewer) for a few days, and food is not delivered for a couple days, riots will break out and the response from the police will be to contain you, not to offer you help. If you have to go to a relief center, be prepared for your personal belongings to be stolen, you will not be able to carry anything for personal protection, even kitchen or swiss army knives which you will never get back, and expect to encounter violence from people who may or may not be part of the government.

15.2.3 Prepare Ahead of Time

Back to table of contents

If you are planning to wait until the last minute, most people will be doing the same and realize that when the trucks stop coming, there is only enough food for everyone stored in local stores to provide for people for 3 days. Within hours of the disaster, everything in every store that could possibly be of use to you will be totally gone. This happens all the time in hurricane country even when people know it is that season and they have been hit in the past, they still wait until the last minute.

Do not count on having access to any sort of power and expect that you will not be able to use credit cards or toilets. Keep cash on hand in addition to your supplies and keep low denominations because local vendors will likely not be able to give change and instead round off items for sale to the nearest dollar.

15.2.4 God Wants You to Be Prepared

Back to table of contents

Some people also believe that to have faith in God means that they should depend on miracles to survive, but the Bible teaches in Genesis with the living example of the patriarch Joseph, as a leader under the Pharaoh in Egypt, that we should save a little extra each year for the lean years.

15.2.5 Preparation will Vary According to Your Situation

Back to table of contents

Preparing will involve different things for different people. Some want to live off grid and live off the land with no power. Others will merely have a a few weeks supply of food on hand. There is no one list because everyone's situation is different.

15.3 Survive Disasters: Survival Kits

Back to table of contents

15.3.1 Bug Out Gear

Back to table of contents

This survival kit, called a Bug Out Bag, is designed for survival for several days and contains everything necessary to get you to your permanent retreat, a place in a rural area where you intend on spending a long emergency situation with your family or group of friends, like a farm or ranch. This should be able to be carried by you on foot, as you have to assume that you will not be able to get gas for your car at the time of the disaster.

15.3.2 Doomstead

Back to table of contents

A doomstead is your permanent retreat. You want to have a piece of land that one member of your group owns, preferably with a number of acres of land in which to weather out a major disaster. You want to be able to get plenty of fresh water, have good soil, mild weather, a homogeneous population, and have low population density.

15.3.3 What to Stock up On

Back to table of contents

Save as many open pollinated seeds, plastic sheeting/containers, metal tools, soap, warm clothing, fresh water as possible as these are not easy to come by in disaster situations. The following items are relatively inexpensive now but are worth more than gold in times of disaster.

Seeds are the most important thing to save, because they will provide you food in the future, but the seeds that are in your local stores, although cheaper, are hybrids and you cannot grow plants from the seeds of hybrid plants for the following years. You can find open pollinated seeds online.

Plastic sheeting is useful for many things especially waterproofing and sealing rooms from nuclear/chemical/biological contamination, plastic containers can be used to store food and water. Plastic is not easy to produce without modern technology.

Metal tools are very hard to make without access to lots of energy and/or advanced machinery that is hard to get, expensive, and too heavy to carry.

Soap is essential to staying healthy and can be made fairly easily, but is very toxic and dangerous to make.

Warm clothing is important because even if you have mild weather, the climate throughout the world may change quickly and there will be more extreme storms because of global warming.

Fresh water is essential for life and is not always easy to collect from rainwater, in the midst of a disaster, especially if it happens in a dry area or during the summer.

15.3.4 Learn Valuable Skills

Back to table of contents

The key to survival is to have the know how to be a useful member of society, where you can provide a critical service, that is in high demand. You need to plan on not having access to power.

Farming would be the best skill as we would need 50 million farmers to feed America without access to modern, oil-based technologies.

You can get books on self defense, medicine, plant identification, water storage, gardening, butchering, preserving food, cooking, tanning leather, leather working, sewing, carpentry, paper making, brewing beer, and blacksmithing through Amazon.com and at your local bookstore.

15.3.5 Resilience

Back to table of contents

Don't put all your resources into any one thing. Spend some on disaster supplies, save some in cash on hand, save some money in the bank, pay off debts, and lower monthly expenses by canceling unnecessary services.
